Keep advocacy center open

childabuseGood for Sedgwick County and the city of Wichita for working to keep the Child Advocacy Center of Sedgwick County open for another year. The County Commission will vote Wednesday on providing $120,000 in funding for the center, and the city reportedly may contribute $50,000. The funding wouldn’t address the center’s need for larger, better-suited office space so that social workers, medical personnel, prosecutors, counselors and police can all operate under one roof, thereby reducing the trauma on victims of child abuse and neglect. But the funding buys some time to find a more permanent solution.
